Unemployment EXTENDED benefits expire Jan 1. 2013!!!


These benefits are going to run out for EVERYONE on Jan. 1, 2013 (they’re ALREADY running out for people who are losing their jobs now — I think after June 2012 you’re not able to get them).

They’re running out for me, too (luckily I qualify until the end of the year).

Only a small amount of people *may* get them until June 1st, 2013. After June 1st, 2013, it’s definitely over.

All UI claims will get 25 weeks and that’s it (maybe some state extensions, but those are so short they’re almost not worth mentioning, and require a lot more paperwork and for you to jump through hoops to qualify).

What you need to appreciate is that from 2008 and onward, most people on UI enjoyed up to 99 weeks of weekly checks.

It was reduced this year to 72 weeks.

Now it virtually expires completely Jan 1, 2013.

The gravy train is over.

 

 From Wikipedia

What is EUC08? EUC08, or Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008, is an extension of unemployment benefits authorized under Federal law. The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (enacted on Feb 22, 2012) modified EUC08.[3][4]
Who is eligible for this extension? Claimants who filed an initial claim effective on or after May 7, 2006 are potentially eligible for EUC08. Individuals who are monetarily ineligible when a new benefit year is filed may qualify for EUC08 on the basis of a previous claim.
